Witness to the League of Blond Hip Hop Dancers: A Novella and Short Stories by Donna Allegra

2000, paperback

In a novella and 11 stories, widely published author and dancer Donna Allegra presents a lyrical and stirring portrait of black lesbians set against the backdrop of West African, jazz, and hip-hop dance. In each story readers inhabit the skin of women who live for dance, women who work and love in a world in which bodies are disrobed and constantly on parade but where lesbian erotics are rarely spoken. But for all these lesbians, women come first in importance-an uncommon stance in the new mythology that paints black women as self-sacrificing towers of strength waiting to exhale.
